Tokyo Akasaka Yabu Soba Serves Traditional And Elegant Soba Dishes
Tokyo Akasaka Yabu Soba is directly connected to Akasaka Station and is in the Akasaka Biz tower. The interior is relaxing and you can also reserve private rooms so it is a great place for a business lunch or dinner. The buckwheat flour for the soba is ground in the store so it has an enticing smell of buckwheat and sesame oil for the tempura as you enter the restaurant.
From Akasaka Station, you can head to this traditional restaurant to have amazing soba
The founder of Kanda Yabu Soba was working for a famous traditional soba restaurant until he opened his own.

The sauce is made with kombu and bonito flakes which really brings out a deep umami flavour.
This "kakiage tempura" is made with small shrimps and vegetables and is then placed in a warm broth. The thick dashi and the crunchy tempura are made for each other, no wonder it had a revival.
Which dishes to enjoy with some Japanese sake
A standard dish to order at a soba restaurant is dashi fried rolled egg.
Before getting your soba dish, you can enjoy this super fluffy omelette with some Japanese sake.
The dashi they use is the same as for the soba.
It is served with salt and tsuyu which complement the tempura perfectly.
